The midfielder will move to Mestalla on a season-long loan
Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez will join Valencia in the coming hours. The youngster skipped Barça training on Wednesday and arrived in Valencia later in the day to seal a season-long loan move.
Nico, 20, has opted to leave Camp Nou in search of minutes and hopes to find them at Mestalla under Italian coach Gennaro Gattuso.
"I am looking forward to it and I am really happy," he told reporters in Valencia. "I've been excited over the last two days. I hope to get minutes on Sunday. I have spoken with the coach and the feelings are good."
The move is still not official but it is now a matter of time.
